Psalms 25



1 Of David.
א to Thee, O Jehovah,
do I lift·​·up my soul.

2 O my God,
ב I trust in Thee, let me not be·​·ashamed;
let not my enemies triumph over me.

3 ג Also, let all who wait·​·for Thee not be·​·ashamed;
they shall be·​·ashamed who act·​·treacherously lacking·​·cause.

4 ד Make me to know Thy ways, O Jehovah;
teach me Thy paths.

5 ה Make me to tread in Thy truth,
ו and teach me,
for Thou art the God of my salvation; for Thee I wait all the day.

6 ז Remember Thy compassions, O Jehovah, and Thy mercies;
for they are from eternity.

7 ח The sins of my youth, and my transgressions, remember them not;
according·​·to Thy mercy remember Thou me, because·​·of Thy goodness, Jehovah.

8 ט Good and upright is Jehovah;
therefore He will instruct sinners in the way.

9 י He will make the meek to tread in judgment;
and He will teach the meek His way.

10 כ All the paths of Jehovah are mercy and truth
to those who observe His covenant and His testimonies.

11 ל For the sake of Thy name, O Jehovah,
pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

12 מ Who is this, the man who fears Jehovah?
Him shall He instruct in the way that he shall choose.

13 נ His soul shall pass·​·the·​·night in goodness;
and His seed shall possess the land.

14 ס The secret council of Jehovah is for those who fear Him;
and He will make them to know His covenant.

15 ע My eyes are continually toward Jehovah;
for He will bring·​·out my feet from the net.

16 פ Turn· Thy ·faces to me and be·​·gracious·​·to me;
for I am alone and afflicted.

17 צ The adversities of my heart are enlarged;
bring· me ·out from my anguish.

18 ר See my affliction and my labor;
and lift all my sins.

19 ר See my enemies, that they are multiplied;
and they hate me with violent hatred.

20 ש O keep my soul, and rescue me;
let me not be ashamed, for I confide in Thee.

21 ת Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
for I wait·​·for Thee.

22 Ransom Israel, O God,
out·​·of all his adversities.
